Default Acura RSX type S...Love it or Hate it?

I want to hear from people that actually OWN the car and drive it daily, not from people who have just test driven it. Thanks.

I drove one for a while day.And then months later, I drove another one for a couple of days borrowing it from someone.It was an amazing crazy quick car for a FWD. Amazing high revving engine. I couldn't stay away from 8000rpm.The car is extremely reliable being made by Honda. And it is great on gas, but requires premium gas.It has a large trunk. You can fit a 40 inch LCD tv in there when you fold the back seats down.I wish I got to keep it forever.

Well, I've daily drivin my 02 rsx type-s for over 9 months now and quite honestly i love it! I find reasons to drive places rather than ride with people... The only thing i dislike about my car, well, actually i HATE about it is the crappy transmission! If you plan on hitting v-tack (vtec lol) alot, then prepare to do it from highway speeds only as these transes grind bad going into 2nd... mine also pops out of 3rd while downshifting, and 4th grinds occasionally as well... No matter how bad these problems get though, i love my car and will always love it, and even grinding 4th i pulled an IS300 on the highway one day :-) I would recomend this car over many others!! Good luck

I've had my '03 RSX type S for over 5 months now and still love it. I wasn't so sure about it when I first bought it, I had never really seen or heard about them before; but a relative of mine who has had many manuals in his lifetime told me not to pass up on this car. I bought the car and loved it.For being 6 years old with 80,000 miles on it the interior is still in great shape. The car gets great gas millage, I fill up maybe once a week and it costs about 27$,28$ to fill it up. This car is hard not red line shift in, the engine sounds great and when the v-tech kicks in it sounds even better. I think the only thing that kind of bugs me is that the v-tech kicks in at 6,000RPM and the car red lines at 8,000RPM so it feels like by the time the v-tech kicks in you have to shift. Other than that the car is great, been lovin it!

I've owned my 2002 RSX-S since July of 2001 (the week they hit the showrooms) I WILL not give it up...I'm keeping it.
